Urban Outfitters to Sell Vegan Outerwear from July

According to Drapers, vegan fashion label brand MATT & NAT will launch a line of outerwear for the fall season this year. MATT & NAT collections are available in hundreds of boutiques across Canada, the United States, the UK, Japan, Germany and Australia.

The Canadian brand states that its “values include social responsibility, excellence, inclusiveness, integrity, learning, authenticity and, of course, love. We are inspired by the textures and hues of nature and, to better protect it, we aim to constantly better our ways.”

“From the start, being committed to not using leather or any other animal-based materials in our designs felt natural to us. Each season, we continue to explore new innovative ways to remain sustainable and eco-friendly. Over the years, we’ve been experimenting with different recycled materials such as recycled nylons, cardboard, rubber and cork. Since 2007, we’ve been committed to using linings only made out of 100% recycled plastic bottles. We have also recently introduced recycled bicycle tires to our collections.”

The new collection, available from July, will feature men and women’s jackets, including a recycled puffer jacket and vegan leather jacket.
